Discover Oze

Oze is a national park located 150km north of Tokyo and boasts an elevation of 1400m. This region is well-known among Japanese for its hiking opportunities and is considered the birthplace of nature conservation in Japan. Oze is also famous for its marshlands, surrounded by mountain peaks that are over 2000m in height. During winter, snowfall is so heavy that Oze is known as one of the top ten  snowiest areas in the world – the snow piles up to over 5 meters! Oze’s beautiful flowers bloom only for a short period of time from mid May to mid October. During this time, over 300,000 hikers use the various trekking routes to enjoy the scenery. A visit to Oze, with its flowers and beautiful landscapes, is a memorable one.
